    1908-D Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, MS66
    Short Rays, No Motto Variant

    1908-D $20 No Motto MS66 PCGS. The Denver Mint struck 663,750 No Motto Saint-Gaudens double eagles in 1908. Roger W. Burdette estimates 40% of those coins were produced with the original Short Rays obverse of 1907 (Type 1), while the majority show the new Long Rays obverse (Type 2). The present coin is a spectacular Premium Gem representative of the Type 1 design, with sharply detailed design elements and well-preserved orange-gold surfaces that radiate vibrant mint luster. Overall eye appeal is fantastic. This coin should find a home in the finest collection or Registry Set. Population: 12 in 66 (1 in 66+), 0 finer (6/16).(Registry values: N1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 26F7, PCGS# 9143)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
